What Does cPanel Web Hosting Stand for?
For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel website hosting offerings on the present web hosting marketplace are provided by a quite inconsiderable marketing niche (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a type of a small-sized business niche, which provides a vast number of different web hosting brand names, yet offering precisely the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offerings on the entire website hosting marketplace provide one and the very same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting prices are alike. Quite similar. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel option. So, there is simply one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mark that one...
200,000 "website hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely branded
The website hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google reveals to us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Assume you are only an average person who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web page making procedures and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domain names and web sites. Are you prepared to make your web hosting choice? Is there any website hosting option you can pick? Sure there is, right now there are more than 200,000 web hosting companies out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand different website hosting brand names all over the world will give you strictly the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, named differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the assortment on the present-day website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.
The website hosting LOTTERY we are all part of
Simple arithmetic shows that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a mammoth strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...
The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel website hosting solution
Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps answered most website hosting market demands. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...
Negative Aspect Number 1: A moronic domain folder structure
If you have 2 or more domains, though, be very careful not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to delete on the web server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain folder system is:public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-domain.com (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-wife.net (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/rebeka.my-third-wife.net (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)
Are you growing disorientated? We undeniably are!
Problem Number 2: The very same email folder arrangement
The mail folder configuration on the server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin boys strongly reinforce their belief in God when tackling the mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too irretrievably.
Downside Number 3: An entire deficiency of domain administration options
Do we need to bring up the entire deficiency of a contemporary domain administration user interface - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, modify domains' Whois details, protect the Whois info, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's an enormous disadvantage. An unforgivable one, we want to add...
Shortcoming Number 4: Numerous login places (minimum 2, maximum three)
How about the need for another login to use the invoicing transaction, domain and tech support management interface? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based website hosting provider. At times, depending on the invoice transaction tool (especially built for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel website hosting service provider is making use of, the devoted clients can wind up with two extra login locations (1: the billing/domain name management tool; 2: the ticket support tool), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).
Weak Side Number Five: 120+ hosting Control Panel menus to pick up... briskly
cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the web hosting CP. It's a fine idea to learn each one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them briskly... That's very impertinent on cPanel's side.
With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel website hosting corporations:
As far as we know, it's not the year 2001, is it? Note that one too...
